Sunday Masters

Yesterday's semifinals of the Greenacres Junior Masters saw Andrea Pilzer's Italian side (above) edge past Hamilton McMillan's team only after a last stone measure. All the details are here.

That put the Italian side into the final game against Bruce Mouat, in the head, above. Mouat's team had disposed of Jay McWilliam's National Academy side in the other semifinal, 9-4 after seven.

Here are the other members of the Mouat team. Colin Mouat and Darryl Russell are working on Derrick Sloan's stone.

It was to be Bruce's day! He played a long raise takeout in the seventh to tie the final, just as it seemed the Italians would go two ahead. Then he engineered a single steal in the last end for the win.

L-R: Colin Mouat, Darryl Russell, Derrick Sloan, Bruce Mouat with Rhona Martin who presented the prizes.

Scottish Junior Champion Lauren Gray counted three in the final end of her semifinal against the Hannah Fleming team.

And that set up a final game against Helen King whose team had beaten Lauren's side in the round robin.

Tasha Aitken, Caitlin Barr and Jennifer Dodds, with Lauren, made no mistake in the rematch, jumping to a 4-0 lead, a deficit from which the King team could not recover.

Sarah Wood and Hazel Smith sweep Eilidh Templeton's stone in the final.

And here are the winners with Rhona. L-R: Lauren Gray, Jennifer Dodds, Tasha Aitken and Caitlin Barr. All the results and linescores are here.
